Storyline

The graduating class at Miss Aversham and Miss Cronstall's School for Girls find that they have - in defiance of the natural laws of probability - all blossomed simultaneously. Capitalizing on their unique status, and intent on teaching high school boys to NEVER take girls for granted, they issue a challenge to the boys of Easthill's rival private schools, Selby and Lancaster. The winner in a series of designated competitions will be awarded exclusive rights to the girls as prom dates. Like the capricious and meddlesome gods of Greek mythology, the ACS girls pit the boys' schools against each other in a (secret) Prom War. Written by Myles Hainsworth

Funny with a solid message
22 January 2011 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

Ignore FordPrefect's comments. I've watched this movie twice now, and it holds up to second viewing quite well. More importantly, the message that Myles Hainesworth tries to convey--fight for what you want, never take it for granted--is muted at times but valid none the less. What I particularly enjoyed about this movie was its basis in an actual school rivalry between two boys schools in Montreal, Selwyn House (Selby House in the film) and Lower Canada College (Lancaster College). The real girls school is ECS, instead of the ACS of the film. Alia Shawkat does not disappoint. It's good fun with a good message. And you can definitely watch it with your folks, provided they are understanding about strong language in a film with actors playing teenagers.
